    The sad truth is , if you can obfuscate it, you can deobfuscate it.

    Well, sort of. What proguard does is takes code such as

    package com.mygamecompany.mygame.enemy;

    class Enemy {
    private int health;
    private float x;
    private float y;

    public void fireAtPlayer()...
    }

    and turns it into something like

    package a.b.c.d;

    class A {
    private int a;
    private float b;
    private float c;

    public void d()...
    }

    The code will still run, but deciphering what most of it means will take while, particularly if the code is badly written to begin with.

    Proguard also won't obfuscate any strings in the code, you can get commercial obfuscators which will do this though.

    It's just curiosity, I wanted to know if I could not allow anyone to see my app code clear.
